For over 30 years Marisa Anderson has been a constant student of the legacies and possibilities of the electric guitar, endlessly dissecting stringed music from all backgrounds, letting it enrich her own arcane and unique playing style. From a background of classical guitar, Andersen ended up playing in an assortment of jazz, country and circus bands, all the time delving deeply into North African and South American sounds, developing her own style.

As a teenager, Marisa Anderson dropped out of college and left her home in Northern California on foot to criss-cross the United States. Whilst now settled in Portland, Oregon, a life of immersive travelling allowed to to collect stories and ideas that have informed her musicianship. Rooted in the rich heritage of traditional American guitar music, Anderson veers off into more esoteric zones, much like her contemporary Tashi Dorji, utilising non-standard intonations and deconstruction of form.

Her latest album, «Cloud Corner», recently released on the redoubtable Thrill Jockey label, sees Andersen expand her palette with crepuscular keyboard washes, winding piano lines, and endlessly cascading guitar flurries. Boundless, yet firmly grounded, it's a fantastically individual collection of hopeful tunes that serve as a welcoming haven in a tumultuous world.
